Miami – (April 15, 2008 ) – Celebrity Cruises’ four- and five-night Caribbean sailings are perfect getaways for guests who crave a taste of the lineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s signature service with style and the spectacular sunsets of the Caribbean. The lineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2009-2010 winter Caribbean season will feature, for the third consecutive year, a series of these sailings on the recently refurbished Celebrity Century. These voyages opened for sale today. From December 12, 2009 through April 22, 2010, Celebrity Century will sail a total of 29 short Western Caribbean itineraries, departing from Miami, Florida, on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Each itinerary features two ports of call; these include Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and Key West, Florida.
Onboard the 1,814-guest Celebrity Century, guests can enjoy all the enhancements made when the ship underwent a $55-million makeover in 2006. These upgrades included the addition of 314 new verandas, 14 new suites, 10 new staterooms ranging from inside to veranda categories, and an expanded number of ConciergeClass category staterooms. Celebrity also expanded its AquaSpa, added the specialty restaurant, Murano, refurbished the main dining room, created the first ice bar at sea, and enhanced the bedding in staterooms.
In port, guests can experience the delights of the Caribbean through a variety of shore and land excursions, such as “Temazcal Mayan Steamlodge Experience” in Cozumel, which includes a shaman-guided ritual reflective of those that the ancient Mexicans would perform; “Chukka Ultimate Adventure” in Ocho Rios, which offers a horseback ride along the White River, river innertubing, a Jamaican lunch and a hike; or “Taste of Key West,” a guided walking tour through the townÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s colorful gardens and historic buildings, with delectable treats included.
